[Article] Paleo and Red Meat Can Reverse Leaky Gut : Paleo
"The paleo diet can do a great job reversing leaky gut.

Leaky gut used to be a fringe medical condition. Most mainstream doctors didn’t recognize it as a real disease. But now we're started to realize it's implicated in a whole host of diseases. Everything from cancer to autoimmune disorders.

Unfortunately, the beloved veggies are actually a BIG reason why people have leaky gut. But the main culprit is our SAD SAD diet. (I'm referring to the standard american diet of course).

If you have incessant chronic issues, this could be why....

What is Leaky Gut? (It's not just two gross words together)

🥩The small intestine is ~50% of your gut. It is responsible for 90% of food absorption and has the largest mass of immune cells in your entire body [*].

🥩The only barrier protecting what you eat from your bloodstream is just a single layer of mucous, linked together by proteins [*]

🥩When this barrier is broken, it results in leaky gut. The lining of your gut is not HOLDING THE DOOOOORRR.

🥩Toxins like gluten and chemicals like arsenic or BPA to pass into your bloodstream. Rightfully so, your body freaks out.

🥩Your immune system is mobilized to expel the toxins, which creates inflammation throughout your body (not just in the gut).

Symptoms of Leaky Gut / Long Term Consequences

🥩33% of autoimmune disorders are already linked to leaky gut. Type 1 diabetes, for example, is an autoimmune disorder where your immune system attacks your pancreas. [*]

🥩Cancer: The team at Paleomedicina showed that leaky gut may be accompanied by permeability in other membranes too, like the arteries and blood brain barrier [*]

🥩Food sensitivities (this is both a cause and an effect)

🥩Skin issues like acne and eczema

🥩Gut issues like IBS

🥩Alzheimers: When intestinal permeability increases, toxins pass through the bloodstream and to the brain through the vagus nerve. This triggers inflammation, which can cause a breakdown in cognitive function [*]

🥩Anxiety and Depression (also through vagus nerve and BBB permeability)

What Causes Leaky Gut? Two main things:

🥩Inflammation: Diet or stress related

🥩Certain foods directly degrade the gut lining: alcohol, gluten, saponins, nightshades and lectin are all examples

Why Paleo / Carnivore Diet Cures It

🥩It cuts out the main dietary triggers: FODMAPs, Gluten, Poisonous veggies, sugar, alcohol, etc.

🥩It can actually heal the gut

🥩Meat and ketone production reduces inflammation. Very few people are intolerant to meat

🥩Protein protects the intestinal barrier: Among the many amino acids, glutamine and tryptophan have been reported to maintain, promote, and protect intestinal barrier function. Glutamine, one of the nonessential amino acids, is a major energy source for intestinal epithelial cell [*]

🥩Omega 3's help to heal the gut: Omega-3s reverse gut imbalances — dysbiosis — and increase the production of anti inflammatory compounds.

🥩Vitamins D and A improve the cohesion of the intestinal wall: Vitamin D helps improve the strength of the protein junctions between intestinal cells [*]. Vitamin A has also been shown to increase the intestinal defense layer [*]. Eat beef liver!

Researchers from India and France have restored memory in mice with Alzheimer’s disease : Futurology
See the top comment by Wiggling_cattails:
"Mice do not get Alzheimer's naturally. We give it to them, so when we cure it, the mice are reverting back to their natural state. This proved problematic for Pfizer who "cured" their mice, but whose clinical study in human failed earlier this year, resulting in their pulling their funding. Beagles get Alzheimer's naturally and might prove to be a better model though."

Woman battles cancer with diet; Harvard researchers to study her - Tri-State News, Weather & Sports
"DELAFIELD, WI (WISN/CNN) – A woman said her emphasis on diet helped her in her battle against cancer, and now her approach will be studied by researchers at Harvard University to see if it can help others.

For Kathy Bero, time in the kitchen is an investment in good health.

"It isn’t really about eating healthy," Bero said. "It's about eating specific foods that fight disease."

She ought to know. In 2005, doctors diagnosed Bero with inflammatory breast cancer. Her prognosis for survival was 21 months.

At the time, Bero was 41 years old and the mother of two young girls. She fought the disease with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. But the cancer fought back.

"Eleven months after my first diagnosis, I was diagnosed with a high-grade tumor in my head and neck," Bero said.

The medication took its toll.

"My kidneys were failing; my liver was failing," Bero said. "My lungs were damaged. My heart was damaged. I told my oncologist that I'm done with that protocol because one way or another, I'm going to die. And I don't want to go that way."

It was then she decided to go off chemotherapy and use a strategy suggested by a friend.

"My friend kept saying you have to learn about anti-angiogenic foods," Bero said.

Anti-angiogenic foods essentially block the creation of blood vessels so cancer can’t easily spread. Examples include organic vegetables such as purple potatoes, carrots and leeks.

"Leeks are at the top of the cancer-fighting list," Bero said.

Also on her list: berries, walnuts, green tea and herbs, especially garlic.

"When a recipe calls for two cloves, I’m probably going to put in six because garlic is a really strong cancer fighter," Bero said.

Bero said her diet - combined with a type of alternative medicine called Reiki, along with meditation and visualization - worked.

"My doctors just kept saying, 'Huh. That is interesting,'" she said.

Today, more than 12 years after her first diagnosis, Bero, who is 54, said she's cancer-free and now works as a cancer coach.

"She's teaching me food is the best form of medicine," said Phil Baugh, one of Bero's clients. Baugh, a 43-year-old father of three, is fighting brain cancer.

"It's stopped growing now, so it's wonderful," Baugh said. "And a huge part of that is food."

Researchers at Harvard University learned of Bero's success and will study her method.

"It's exciting," Bero said. "I'm now validated. I'm no longer the 'crazy cancer patient.' There's a real science that is going to be there."

Bero said Harvard researchers will study people who've had exceptional outcomes.

"They're looking at our genetics and the genetics of the tumor," Bero said. "What the outliers did; their attitude, environment, faith, social support. What they're trying to do is create a database of all these different things and look for the commonalities between these people."

The lead Harvard researcher, Dr. Isaac Kohane, said that because these outcomes are so rare, this particular study will take some time to complete."

Novel Intervention May Reverse Alzheimer's Memory Loss
10/15/2014 www.medscape.com/viewarticle/832752_print
http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/832752_print 1/3
October 03, 2014
A novel, comprehensive lifestyle intervention has shown promise in reversing memory loss related to Alzheimer's
disease (AD), preliminary research suggests.
According to investigators, this novel intervention is aimed at "tweaking" the network of imbalances in the brain that
contribute to cognitive decline.
"We've been studying the underlying mechanisms of neurodegeneration in the test tube and in transgenic mice for 25
years, and we came to the conclusion that there is an imbalance between the physiological processes that mediate
plasticity in Alzheimer's disease ― between synaptoblastic and synaptoclastic signaling — similar to what we see in
osteoporosis, where osteoblastic signaling is chronically exceeded by osteoclastic signaling, resulting in bone loss,"
principal investigator Dale Bredesen, MD, professor of neurology and director, Mary S. Easton Center for Alzheimer's
Disease Research, University of California, Los Angeles, told Medscape Medical News.
Through this lifestyle intervention, "it appears we can correct this network imbalance by tweaking it at multiple sites," Dr
Bredesen added.
The study was published online September 27 in the journal Aging.
Sustained, Marked Improvement
A total of 10 patients with memory loss associated with either AD, mild cognitive impairment, or subjective cognitive
impairment were recruited for the study.
Each participant was instructed to follow a personalized intervention program tailored to address specific metabolic
deficits identified on laboratory testing as affecting the plasticity of the participant's brain, causing memory loss.
Nine of the 10 patients displayed subjective or objective improvement in cognition within 3 to 6 months of initiation of
treatment. The single patient who failed to respond to the intervention had late­stage AD.
Six participants had discontinued working or were struggling with their jobs at study outset because of memory
"All were able to return to work or continue working with improvement performance, and improvements have been
sustained," said Dr Bredesen.
At the present time, one patient has been followed for 2.5 years from the initial presentation, and the patient continues to
show "sustained and marked improvement."
Dr Bredesen noted that the level of improved function required to work effectively is an important outcome of any
successful therapeutic intervention.
Optimizing Metabolic Parameters
In studies of transgenic mice, Dr Bredesen and colleagues found that beta­amyloid precursor protein (APP) signaling
can be manipulated to inhibit the underlying pathophysiology that causes AD.
However, many different metabolic factors contribute to APP signaling, including hormones, inflammatory mediators,
and exercise.

This suggests that the pathobiology of AD must be approached at different points of intervention and not with a single
targeted agent.
"Just as for other chronic illnesses such as atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, the goal is not simply to normalize
metabolic parameters, but rather to optimize them," the investigators write.
"Based on the hypothesis that AD results from an imbalance in an extensive plasticity network, the therapy should
address as many network components as possible, with the idea that a combination approach may create an effect that
is more than the sum of the effects of many monotherapeutics," the researchers add.
Critical to the success of this hypothesis is the idea that there is a "threshold" at which multiple interventions will start to
reverse the pathology leading to memory loss.
As Dr Bredesen points out, it has been shown by Dean Ornish, MD, founder and president of Preventive Medicine
Research Institute, San Francisco, California, among others that with a large enough lifestyle change, buildup of
atherosclerotic plaque and subsequent coronary artery disease can be reversed.
Similarly, in AD, if enough of the factors that contribute to the imbalance between synaptoblastic and synaptoclastic
signaling in the brain can be reversed, deficits in the network that lead to memory loss can be redressed — "and you
start to see improvement, which is exactly what we saw in these patients. If they follow enough of these interventions,
they are able to improve," Dr Bredesen said.
Tailored Interventions
The interventions used in the 10 patients involved in the UCLA pilot project were tailored to each individual, but they
shared similar elements. Typically, patients were asked to eliminate all simple carbohydrates from their diet.
They were also asked to increase consumption of fruit, vegetables, and nonfarmed fish and to follow a strict meal
pattern with specifically timed interludes of fasting.
Exercise was a key component of all interventions, and participants were counseled on ways to reduce stress through
practices such as yoga and meditation.
Participants also took a large variety of daily supplements, including vitamin D3, fish oil, coenzyme Q10, melatonin, and
And where appropriate, practitioners counseled their female patients to resume previously discontinued hormone
replacement therapy.
"The program is not easy to follow," Dr Bredesen acknowledged. (None of the patients in this pilot project were able to
fully follow the program).
"But what this program says is that we are all contributing to our own AD by the diet we chose to eat; by the way we
sleep; by the stress we have in our lives; by our microbiome; and of course by our genetics.
"The important thing here is, we can alter cognitive decline by affecting each of these parameters."
Growing Evidence
Commenting on the study for Medscape Medical News, Heather Snyder, PhD, director, medical and scientific relations,
Alzheimer's Association, Chicago, Illinois, said a number of studies have shown that lifestyle interventions can attenuate
the progressive decline in cognitive function in older individuals.
10/15/2014 www.medscape.com/viewarticle/832752_print
http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/832752_print 3/3
Most recently, the FINGER study (Finnish Geriatric Intervention Study to Prevent Cognitive Impairment and Disability),
which was presented earlier this year at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference 2014 and was reported by
Medscape Medical News at that time, showed that a multipronged lifestyle intervention had a significant beneficial effect
on overall cognitive performance, including memory, executive function, and psychomotor speed, in a large cohort of
older participants at high risk for cognitive decline.
"The FINGER study certainly suggests that this is the kind of study we need to do in translating what Dr Bredesen did to
a much larger clinical trial," Dr Snyder said.
Dr Snyder also noted that it is clear the underlying pathology driving AD is already changing well before patients
manifest overt memory loss and accompanying symptoms of the disease.
"This presents us with an opportunity to identify those individuals at the earliest stage of AD, when we can intervene with
a medication or some type of nonpharmacological intervention," she suggested.
Efforts to do just that are already under way with the launch of the Anti­Amyloid Treatment in Asymptomatic Alzheimer's
(A4) study. The A4 study is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of an investigational drug to attenuate memory loss in
patients at high risk for AD.
Dr Bredesen and Dr Snyder report no relevant financial relationships.

To solve problems caused by sitting, learn to squat — Quartzy
"Avni Trivedi, a doula and osteopath based in London (disclosure: I have visited her in the past for my own sitting-induced aches) says the same is true of squatting as a birthing position, which is still prominent in many developing parts of the world and is increasingly advocated by holistic birthing movements in the West.

“In a squatting birthing position, the muscles relax and you’re allowing the sacrum to have free movement so the baby can push down, with gravity playing a role too,” Trivedi says. “But the perception that this position was primitive is why women went from this active position to being on the bed, where they are less embodied and have less agency in the birthing process.”"

"1) Foot mobility work

Spending years in narrow, supportive shoes creates a stiff and weak foot. This exercise helps restore mobility in the joints of the feet and wake up the muscles that often become tight and unable to function properly.

Dosage: 1 minute going from heel to toe, 1 minute from side to side with the heel on the ground as a pivot point. Apply enough pressure that it creates mild discomfort (like a deep massage). 2 minutes per foot done several times daily will give powerful results when done consistently.

2) Hip mobility work

Spending many hours a day sitting in a chair tightens up the muscles at the front of your hip and steals away your ability to use your glutes (also causing low back pain and inability to generate torque at the hip joint which creates flat feet)

To offset the sitting position this exercise should be done for 1 minute per hip for each hour you sit during the day. 8 hours of sitting (car, meetings, at work) means 8 minutes of this mobilization per hip just to offset those 8 hours.


3) Upper glute reset

The upper glute is an important muscle for generating torque and stability at the hip joint and in a lot of people its locked up and can't do its job. Your hip creates the arch downstream at the foot and without this muscles online its hard to restore your arch.

Spend 2 minutes per side working on this daily until its hard to find tender spots. Once you get to that point you can start working on activating and strengthening the muscle in patterns that help restore a strong, stable arch at the foot.

Bacteria on the Brain - The New Yorker
you really have to read the whole article, but in short I disagree with the way that the primary subject conducted research. He does not look for the mechanisms that create the outcomes he's looking for. He's in for looks for the outcomes. This is similar to believing in magic. Although you might argue that yes, helping people at any cost is good, I believe that we should always seek the mechanisms because it is only then that we can truly know what we are doing. I do this in my daily life with everything I interact with. I am not satisfied with just having a positive result, I need to know why I did, because when situations change, you don't want to believe in magic period you want to know exactly what variables cost what outcome so that you can change them to suit the new circumstances.
